<p>2. -Cameron Neylon 3. Eight committees investigated the allegations and published reports, finding no evidence of fraud or scientific misconduct. However, the reports* called on the scientists to avoid any such allegations in the future by taking steps to regain public confidence in their work, for example by opening up access to their supporting data, processing methods and software, and by promptly honouring freedom of information requests. * Archana Venkatraman, "Data Without the Doubts". Information World Review 4. Andrew Wakefields study, linked the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine to autism. Vaccination rates in the developed world plummeted after the studys publication and a heated anti-vaccination movement persists today. 5. http://www.cfr.org/interactives/GH_Vaccine_Map/#map 6. ? 7. Science has lost its way, at a big cost to humanity Researchers are rewarded for splashy findings, not for double-checking accuracy. So many scientists looking for cures to diseases have been building on ideas that aren't even true. A few years ago, scientists at the Thousand Oaks biotech firm Amgen set out to double-check the results of 53 landmark papers in their fields of cancer research and blood biology. The idea was to make sure that research on which Amgen was spending millions of development dollars still held up. They figured that a few of the studies would fail the test that the original results couldn't be reproduced because the findings were especially novel or described fresh therapeutic approaches. But what they found was startling: Of the 53 landmark papers, only six could be proved valid. http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-hiltzik-20131027,0,1228881.column#axzz2ix1w9zGf 8. A special challenge for science writers covering research today arises from sciences growing credibility problem. It stems from the cumulative effect of errors and exaggerations that has fueled a recent rise in retractions, misconduct, and fraud among peer-reviewed researchers. For reporters covering major scientific developments from the search for alien life and genomics, to particle physics, climate change and cancer it can be difficult to distinguish error from fraud, sloppiness from deception, eagerness from greed or, increasingly, scientific conviction from partisan passion. Findings in fields from climate change to vaccines can also be deceptively cherry-picked in service of a political cause. 9. trust evidence 10. trust documentation 11. trust confidence 12. trust reproducibility 13.

Early models, before 2005 were 31. specialized 1979 Martin disubstituted benzenes 1987 Hanson normal alkanes 1988 Needham normal and branched alkanes 1990 Abramowitz non-hydrogen bonded benzenes 1991 Dearden anilines 1993 Katritzky aldehydes, amines, and ketones 1994 Simamora rigid aromatic 1996 Charlton alkanes 1996 Katritzky pyridines 1999 Zhao aliphatic 2001 Chickos homologous series 2003 Bergstrom druglike (N = 277, r2 = 0.54) 32.

Recent melting point models use these datasets never reproducing r2 = 0.65 (0.47 0.56) 36. Even though [a] melting point can be measured accurately, its prediction has been a notoriously difficult problem. 37. We began measuring, collecting, and curating melting points in the Fall of 2010 38.

How does it work? 1. Look up the solvent boiling point 2. Look up the room temperature solubility or predict it via measured or predicted Abraham descriptors 3. Look up the solute melting point or predict it via a model 4. Use the melting point and the solubility at room temperature to predict the solubility at boiling 5. Calculate the predicted recrystallization yield 65. Lists solvents and their predicted recrystallization yield. Prediction is generated by the temperature dependent solubility curves. 66. ethyl acetate (predicted yield of 72%) vs ethanol (predicted yield of 93%) ethyl acetate ethanol 0.09M 1.1M 0.62M 2.06M 67.
